The 28th Annual KELLEYS ISLAND MAKE-A-WISH SWIM
Cindra Mielke & Jeni Hammond swam around Kelleys Island for the 28th time to raise money to grant wishes for Make-A-Wish kids. The Golf Cart Poker Run alone raised a record $19,000 and with the swim, they raised $35,300.
This year’s swim was from Kelleys Island’s North Loop at the State Park to Portside Marina, and all of the money raised will go to the kids to make their wishes come true, including Sutton, whose wish is for a special play set built to fit his needs. Sutton is 4 and has a malignant neoplasm of the brain; and Logan, who wants to go to Disney World to meet Woody from Toy Story. Logan is 3 and suffers from leukemia.
